Insecure returns to HBO this week! Here’s how you can watch the season 3 premiere online.

The character of Issa Dee on Insecure is something of a treasure. And really, the show is a bit like that as well. In a time where so much of television is taken up by the impossible (zombies and superheroes) or the improbable (How many secret affairs and child geniuses can there really be?) Insecure seems deceptively simple. But the trials of everyday life provide plenty of material for the show to dig in to.

Issa spent much of the second season searching for an identity. Her old (and then new, and then old again) boyfriend, Lawrence, stuck around largely because she defined herself through him. By the end of the season, though, Issa had grown into herself. Working at ‘We Got Y’all’ gave her something to really aim for, even if the non-profit often strayed from its stated mission just a bit.

In the season 3 trailer, Issa is still facing problems with some of the more basic things in life. Like having a place to live. Despite having a job with We Got Y’all she can’t afford, or get approved for, an apartment.  And on this show, moving in with one of her ex-boyfriends probably won’t too smoothly (but should be pretty funny.)

Issa’s troubles aside, the other characters have their own decisions to make. In the season 2 finale, Molly’s life seemed to be looking up. She had been offered a position at a black-run law firm that she thought would appreciate and acknowledge her work fairly. Did it all work out for her? Probably not, but she should at least be a bit more sure of herself.

The premiere of Insecure season 2 airs Sunday at 10:30 on HBO.
